Creamy Rice Pudding

Fresh and warm, this rice pudding is creamy and delicious as a snack, for breakfast, or for dessert.


  • 3 1/2 cups milk
  • 1/2 cup short grain rice (arborio style)
  • 2 tsp vanilla bean paste
  • 2 Tbs sugar


  1. In a medium sized pot add the milk and rice. Heat over a medium-high flame, stirring often until the mixture comes to a boil.
  2. Once boiling, turn the flame down and keep the pudding at a gentle simmer. Stir regular to prevent sticking and scorching.
  3. Cook for 25-35 minutes. Turn off the heat before the pudding is as thick as you want -- it will continue to cook and thicken as it cools. Stir in the vanilla bean paste and sugar, mixing thoroughly.
  4. Serve immediately while it is still warm, or let it cool and serve cold. Enjoy!
